The global Restorative Dentistry Market size is expected to reach USD 30.02 billion by 2028, according to the new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 8.6% from 2021 to 2028. The growth of the market is attributed to the improved quality of services provided in dentistry for the large patient pool. The transmission of COVID-19 by the generation of aerosol produced by dental handpieces is possible. To avoid this, the correct clinical protocols must be followed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the dental market in 2020. According to the WHO guidelines, viral infection mainly spreads through the eyes, nose, and mouth that makes it difficult for the dentist to operate on patients during such times. The routine cleaning, orthodontic procedures, preventive therapies, and oral examinations that do not involve pain management were postponed during the COVID-19 pandemic, thus negatively impacting the market.
Technological advancements such as guided tissue regeneration with CAM/CAD software solutions, computer-aided implant dentistry, and digital radiography have improved the accuracy of restorations. The new equipment and composite materials have compelled the patients for treatment and resulted in better health outcomes and higher satisfaction, along with the timeliness of dental treatment. Thus, advanced technology is anticipated to boost the growth of the market.
The lack of reimbursement may affect market growth. The reimbursement policies for dental structure do not include restorative dentistry. Patients must bear out-of-pocket expenditure that is included with dental procedures, thus patients mainly ignore and delay their dental treatments due to high expenses. Dental procedures such as composite bonding, implants, and cosmetic contouring require high skilled lab technicians and professionals. Thus, dental procedures are very costly in many countries. This factor may hamper market growth.
